Police get out of Portland over “raging idiots” and “incompetent” cowards

4

The City of Portland, Oregon has lost 115 police officers since July 2020. 74 retired and 41 resigned. It’s amazing it’s not more than that, but it’s a lot for Portland. Portland only has 900 full-time police officers.

As they leave, they tell exit interviewers that they are “overworked, overwhelmed, and burned out.”

Nearby Spokane is trying to snatch them up, and even have a billboard up to entice them:

One officer left this message for city officials as he walked out the door, “The community shows zero support. The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchists’ fantasy. What’s worse is ppb command (lt. and above) is arrogantly incompetent and cowardly. The only differences between the Titanic and PPB?” he continued. “Deck chairs and a band.”

In 31 exit interviews, the exiting police officers mocked the city leaders and said there was zero community policing.

Well, Portland officials did say they don’t want the police. Let’s see how that works out for them.

  1. Raging idiots in addition to being stupid, bwahaha!
    That is the faculty lounge defined which is why this isn’t a revolution and it isn’t over yet.
    They are serious about the coup but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t feckless and clueless with choom bong delusions about how things work in the real world.
    I’m not even a glass half full person, well wasn’t until the medical disaster a few years ago.
    Had to get my mind right then along with letting go and letting GOD.

  2. I don’t blame them one bit. I say let the liberal socialist Marxist democrats provide their own form of law enforcement and see how that goes. Of course after all of the destruction, looting. burning and murder created by these peaceful protests by radical snowflakes the tax payer again is hit with the bill. These democrats have no problem spending other peoples money and then get kick backs.

  3. The last time I visited America’s “Left Flank” was more than a dozen years ago…I was not impressed by Portland or Seattle or other major West Coast cities because the folks elect loons to lead them; and even at that time the loons preferred illegal aliens, anarchists & criminals over law abiding citizens.
    Now the loons are destroying the last elements that hold a society together … Soon, Portland & other Left Flank cities will be unlivable & I expect we’ll witness convoys of refugees flow out of the region as regular folks flee for their lives.
    But where will the refugees go? What non-Leftist state would want them? — after all, those will be the same folks who elected & re-elected the loons.

    • The problem is that under the Constitution the few remaining American states cannot refuse to let them in. Take my state of Ga. for example. It has gone from American to Liberal due to the influx of nundreds of thousands of Liberals moving to Atlanta.
